LONDON - Last week, Theresa May was sent back to Brussels to renegotiate her Brexit deal.
In an article in the Sunday Telegraph, the Prime Minister said that she would be going to Brussels to with a "fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination" to stick to the agreed United Kingdom departure date on the 29th March.
"I will be armed with a fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination to agree a pragmatic solution that delivers the Brexit the British people voted for, while ensuring there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland", she stressed.
The EU insists that the deal "remains the best and only way to ensure an orderly withdrawal", but with the clock running down until the March 29 exit date the risks of a no-deal Brexit for both Britain and the bloc are coming into sharp focus.
Writing in the Sunday Independent today Tánaiste Simon Coveney again said: "The Withdrawal Agreement will not be re-opened and the backstop will not be changed, the European Union could not be any clearer on that".
The Mail said the plan would be to delay Brexit but win parliament's backing for a deal in April and then renew May's mandate ahead of negotiations on Britain's future relationship with the EU.
She promised to return to Brussels with renewed commitment and "new ideas" to deliver a deal.
May said she is going back to Brussels to battle for Britain and Northern Ireland.
The EU has rejected reopening talks on the so-called "backstop", an insurance policy to keep an open border on the island of Ireland if Britain and the EU fail to reach a longer-term trade agreement before the end of a transition period.
"Now the PM co-opts us into accepting everything but the backstop", he said on Twitter, adding if all that was agreed on the backstop was a codicil, May could "expect a further substantial defeat for the agreement".
And speaking to Sophy Ridge on Sky News he also made a warning to the Irish government.
Under the current Brexit deal, the 310-mile Irish border would become the only land border between the European Union and the UK.
May is due to report back to parliament on her negotiations with the European Union on 13 February, a few weeks after she secured MPs' support to go back to Brussels.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt conceded on Thursday that "extra time" might be needed to get "critical legislation" related to Brexit through Parliament. She wrote that Now that "the British public wants us to get on and finish the job", and "the vast majority just want MPs to set out a clear plan that will get Brexit through Parliament and allow us to embark upon the next chapter of our national story".
